Is he serious??

Bill O'Reilly chimed in and opined that Shawn Hornbeck, kidnapped four years ago at age 11 by Michael Devlin and found last weekend after Ben Ownby was also kidnapped and found after four days, was somehow having the time of his life because he didn't escape, even though he may have had the chance. Says Pill O'Reilly (along with other head-scratcher comments on his show on January 15th, 2007):

"The situation here for this kid looks to me to be a lot more fun than what he had under his old parents. He didn't have to go to school. He could run around and do whatever he wanted."

What?? You've got to be kidding.

From the other day on True Crime Blog, O'Reilly's comments are here and include the full transcript of his conversation with Greta van Susteren (she's being reasonable, O'Reilly's being an ass).

Then today True Crime Blog links to the partial video of O'Reilly's disgusting commentary here. It's just snippets that include some of the above from the full transcript, but to actually see O'Reilly's face saying it and being serious is unbelievable. Also on True Crime Blog today is the mention of expected additional charges against creepy Devlin (and CNN is saying Shawn was taken at gun point - how pleasant).

Is anyone surprised that this perv was likely raping the boy? Did anyone really think Devlin kidnapped him (and then Ben Ownby) because he wanted to play chess and give some kid the freedom to "do whatever he wanted"? According to O'Reilly's comments, that seems his idea - gee, what fun, Bill! Why don't more 11 year old boys go out and see if they are lucky enough to get kidnapped so that they don't have to go to school and can get piercings (O'Reilly in that transcript has the idea that Shawn Hornbeck was somehow bad because he had piercings - um, OK, Bill). Sure, O'Reilly, that sure sounds like a great trade off for the unspeakable things that likely went on for that 11 year old boy every day for 4 years. Sign us all up - it's worth all the terror. What a jackass O'Reilly is sometimes.


  1. No, he's the biggest horses ass on the face of the planet....but what can you expect from Fox, not exactly a model of reasonable thought and discourse.

  2. Believe it or not, sometimes I actually enjoy O'Reilly (well, back when I got that channel - been awhile), but this time, he was definitely wrong and a huge ass.

  3. sometimes he says such ignorant things I cant help but think he does it for ratings. Surely NO one is that ignorant about kidnapping victims.....


Talk to me.
